Beat The Bite Of The Menacing Mosquito

Posted: 7/17/2013

An all-natural botanical solution can safely and effectively repel up to 95 percent of mosquitoes, a rate equal to chemical area repellents

(NAPSI)—When mosquito season is here, Americans need to be vigilant about protecting themselves and their families. Not only are mosquitoes a terrible nuisance, they can carry West Nile virus, so it’s essential to do all you can to keep the bloodthirsty biters away.

This has proven to be a challenge for many. Nearly 40 percent of U.S. adults don’t use mosquito repellent because they don’t like to put chemicals on their skin, according to a new survey conducted online by Harris Interactive. And 80 percent say that they prefer using natural products for themselves and their families, when available.

Fortunately, it’s now possible to “beat the bite” of the menacing mosquito-gnats and midges, too-with two all-natural, area repellents: the portable Terminix AllClear TableTop Mosquito Repeller and the personal, clipable Terminix AllClear SideKick Mosquito Repeller. Both employ a fan-based diffusion technology to circulate a botanical scent of lemongrass, cinnamon, peppermint and geranium oils that’s safe, when used as directed, to protect people outdoors without needing to spray anything on the skin. This all-natural repellent safely and effectively repels up to 95 percent of mosquitoes, and has been proven equal to chemical area repellents.

These additional tips from the experts at Universal Pest Solutions will also help to keep mosquitoes away:

• Regularly empty water from birdbaths, toys, buckets and ceramic pots.

• Clean out other potential breeding areas such as rain gutters and catch basins.

• Cut and clear away tall grass and weeds.

• Add larvicides such as mosquito dunks (or BTIs) to standing bodies of water.
